Jihee Kim, "Sealed Smile"
Gallery Homeland presents Fresh
, an exhibition of contemporary Korean art. "Still relatively unknown in the West, Korean art is steeped in a rich, 5,000 year long cultural tradition that continues to be embraced by Korean artists in their examination of domestic and foreign influences currently shaping their modern society. The resulting work is diverse, sophisticated and uniquely Korean. Fresh
is a group exhibition of ten South Korean artists modernizing their heritage through the practices of painting and photography."
